The United States expressed disappointment with Germany's refusal to confront Russia

With the coming to power of Olaf Scholz, Germany not only did not become more obedient to the United States, on the contrary, its external policy has already undergone some changes and alienated Berlin from Washington, writes the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.

“Torn” between West and East against the backdrop of a global confrontation between the United States and Russia, Germany made a choice in favor of its own national interests, which caused the disappointment of the American authorities. A clear indicator of this was Berlin's unwillingness to facilitate the supply of arms from the US and Britain to Ukraine.

The British stated that they themselves did not request permission to use the airspace of Germany for the delivery of military cargo in the interests of Kiev, but this was done precisely because of the expected refusal of Berlin

- the newspaper writes.

Another factor in the lack of cooperation between Germany and the United States, the WSJ calls the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Despite Washington's desire to block this energy project, Scholz is of a completely different opinion. The chancellor insists on the need for a clear distinction between politics and the economy, urging not to involve Nord Stream 2 in the conflict between the two powers.

Washington is no less concerned about Berlin's desire to expand economic ties with China.

Berlin at all costs intends to maintain its exports to China, which reaches 150 billion dollars a year. At the same time, Germany forgets about the common “democratic front”, destroying the established world order

says the newspaper.

As an example, the media cites the recent conflict between Lithuania and China, where, instead of supporting its "Baltic comrade", Berlin took the side of the "Asian tiger", demanding that Vilnius cede to Beijing.

    Well, it’s great that the voice of reason began to wake up in the EU, because all of them there perfectly understand that they are only “sixes” for Washington, and nothing more, and NATO does not belong to them, but to their owner, all the same Washington, and the entire US defense industry works for this very NATO, and if NATO is dissolved, then the entire US military industry will basically collapse .... And the statements of the German admiral are just the beginning - Germany, France, Italy, and this is the backbone of the EU, and + Greece Serbia, and some other countries are already openly expressing their dissatisfaction with the overly "leading and guiding" role of the United States.

    Well done, uncle. He did not follow the lead of the hegemon, seeing that the United States is turning from a global leader into a global gopnik.

    Germany will help Ukraine with a hospital with a crematorium
    Germany provided its lackeys-Bandera with field crematoria: in 1941-1944 this service did not exist

    At this rate, soon there will be no Europe left who will support the policy of the overseas chiefs.
